The Public and Community Psychiatry Fellowship Prepares Future Mental Health Leaders
Our Public and Community Psychiatry Fellowship’s mission is “to develop the clinical, management, and administrative skills necessary to be effective leaders in public and community mental health settings.”
In partnership with Case Western Reserve University, this fellowship is a one-year program that combines a clinical placement in the community with weekly didactic sessions to enhance fellows’ understanding of the complexities inherent in caring for individuals with public insurance or in public systems of care.
Our fellowship curriculum includes:
- Individual supervision
- Lifelong access to mentorship and supervision from faculty [link to faculty page] and alumni
- Presentations by leaders in a variety of public and mental health settings
- Presentations that apply management and leadership concepts to the fellows’ clinical placement, including several projects
- Site visits to key settings to help solidify core concepts
- Weekly didactic [link to didactics page] seminars covering a core academic curriculum
- Longitudinal clinical/administrative field placements
Since 2015, we have accommodated distance learners within our fellowship – recognizing that dedication to community psychiatry may place our fellows in areas where access to fellowship training in-person may not be feasible. Our distance fellows are fully incorporated into all of our fellowship activities and we feel their diverse perspectives bring an added richness o the fellowship experience.
We encourage psychiatrists and psychiatric advanced practice nurses who are interested in developing their administrative and leadership skills to apply.
